    Default Xbox help ppplleeasse?!!

    Help me someone who knows!!
    My girls want an xbox 360 for Christmas
    ., primarily for minecraft but I think they will use disney infinity also. We are not huge gamers , they have a wii used for mario racing mostly and Nintendo 3ds, and iPods which they use mostly for minecraft!

    I know some models of 360 are problematic with red ring, but I can't figure out the difference between all the different models.. Trying to pick it up pre owned but don't know what I need! I guess decent storage and wifi is essential.
    Appreciate any help!!

    xbox one came out this year so it is the favourite and has fantastic graphics.

    My son had the previous two models without any red ring problems

    My husband has Xbox 360s for years with no problems. He has recently for the Xbox one and wishes he had stuck with what he had as prefers that version. You should get a good deal as many people selling them to get the new one x

    Yes have heard x box one not as good as in if uour friends don't have one you can't connect and the games from 360 don't work so think an older one would be fine.. Think it needs to be a 360 cos of the minecraft game x

    Sadly to said we have both 360 and th3 one. Both get played with equally. We also have mine craft for both versions.

    I would say if your girls are not big gamers then the 360 will be absolutely fine.

    Oh and we never have lost an xbox the the red ring

    You can get infinity for the wii and also use the pc for minecraft. My son uses the computer which is so much easier as he doesn't hog the tv lol!

    I have both the one and 360 and have had no problems with either. I would recommend the 360 for the children, i use the one primarily for netflix etc....i am not much of a gamer 😏
